CLEVELAND  - The sister of Amanda Berry, one of the three women freed after being held captive for about a decade at an Ohio home, has made a brief statement saying the family is thankful for the community’s support but is asking for privacy.

Berry arrived at her sister’s house Wednesday morning.

Charges against the man who owns the home and his two brothers are expected to come Wednesday.

Ariel Castro and his brothers are in jail but haven’t been charged.

A 911 call led police to his house near downtown Cleveland where Berry and two other women, who disappeared over several years, were found Monday.
